Unicamp is a Unitarian Universalist camp that is committed to providing a safe and welcoming seasonal camp and spiritual retreat to our diverse community. Our programs and activities are designed to grow awareness and practice of our UU values in which our camp is rooted. These values include the understanding of the importance of each person, the quest for kindness in all we do, and that we are free to learn together and search for what is true. We affirm that all people need a voice, and work to build a fair and peaceful world and care for our sacred earth with awareness to the interconnectedness of all things.
Located in Dufferin County, just north of Shelburne, Ontario, Unicamp is within the UNESCO Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve. It boasts 50 beautiful, peaceful acres of meadows, coniferous and deciduous forests, marshes, streams and two beaches on a 2.5-acre spring fed pond that is safe for swimming. This is a magical place to relax, explore and reconnect with self, community and nature.
Unicamp has indoor and outdoor showers, several outhouses, and washrooms in the cabins, the Dining Hall and the Spiritual Centre. You supply your own bedding, pillows and towels. Drinking water is available in all washrooms, at the outdoor sinks, and at several outdoor faucets. Learn more about our facilities here.
We acknowledge and affirm that each of us has special qualities and talents to share. Campers are asked to help with chores such as tidying their dorm, cottage or campsite at the end of their stay, helping us to keep the Unicamp experience affordable for everyone and the environment community- and team-focused.
We would like to acknowledge that Unicamp is situated on the traditional territories of the First Peoples of Turtle Island, and that this land is shared territory between the Neyaashiinigmiing (Cape Croker), Saugeen, and Beausoleil First Nation peoples.

Unicamp’s high quality UU values-based programs and activities enable this community to demonstrate a respect for our natural assets, for each other, and for the interdependent web of creation. Central to this programming is Unicamp’s mandate to organize, operate, and maintain camps with related services for children. We provide facilities for programs, seminars, leadership conferences, and workshops for a variety of ages.
